Other conversion which should be pretty straight forward is fitting the female parts of the side panel clips.

Nah, I don't think so, good thinking though thumb.gif
The width of the side cover (or depth of case) is the same at 483mm
BUT
the S5 side covers are 380mm tall and
roughly measured the tech station height is 330mm.
Think it's too hard of a job to mod the side panels at home.
I'll try a few playing mechano some more and see if I find a configuration I like more.
Otherwise - will go to local metal fabrication joint and see what they can do for me and how much my wallet would hurt redface.gif

Here's some quick shots! thumb.gif

Of course it's always important to picture THE BOX biggrin.gif



Here's the beast in a few angles






Build log will come later....I need to finish my S5 before rolleyes.gif
Hey akira, or CaseLabs crew - quick question if I may.

with the ped, on rear section, are the pegs in place and the threaded inserts installed that the side rad mounts attach to ??
My front section has them but not the rear section.
Think mine's not quite right rolleyes.gif

I really like this.

I may wait for the S8 tech station version and buy a ped for it.

Hey CL, when the S8 Tech Station be available?

The side rad mounts don't use pegs/inserts to mount, should be just a set of thumbscrews used to fix the mount to the holes, like this.....

Hey CL, when the S8 Tech Station be available?

I love it too !!
The tech station parts need some refinement which I suggested to Kevin in an email already.
Obviously the lack of clips on the side rails for side covers to be fitted, and side covers of course.
the top rails of the front and rear section are only just folded over too, compared to the normal front and rear sections that fold over by 15mm or so and have the screw holes to secure the top section to.
At the moment The Tech Station front and backs don't have the screw holes to attach the top drop in section to...
in that pic just 2 screws each side on the upright pillars are holding the top section in place.
and that would be sufficient for the clear window top which it is sooo suited to
BUT the holes on the side pillars are not in correct location - too low, so the top section is too low and can't clip the top panel in place.
I think easiest fix for the top is some extensions (motherboard standoffs) under the roof's pegs to get the top to clip in OR drill 4 new holes so the top chassis section is at correct height.

For sure I think there would be buyers for the tech station version that had side covers available, not just an open bench

no, s8 has pegs similar to the flex bay to help with the side rad mounts.
